This rum sample, from the country mainly known for a canal that gave the name to a famous hat, was certainly challenging conventional wisdom. On the nose neat, yes we did get Muscovado sugar (with that strong scent of molasses), coconut cream and raisins but then we also noticed slightly smoked lemon, nail varnish remover and wheel bearing grease. Good fun on the palate neat, super sweet with a complex layer of toasted oak and citric tartness for an ideal balance. With water, we were served a hot grog cocktail with brown sugar, cinnamon, cloves, honey and lime juice while the taste was enigmatic, stewed rhubarb and herbal notes of fern, sweet and dry – certainly bucking the trend.
